Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an automatic method to create Components and Symbols?
[ General / Libraries ]
Everything can be created manually but there are also Wizards for automatically creating Components, Schematic Symbols and PCB Footprints.
You will find them on the File menu under New on the Wizards tab.
The wizards are a good starting point while learning Easy-PC. Once familiar with the product, you may decide not to use one of these. That is fine, as you can mix and match Wizards and manual creation as you like. The resulting library items are the same whether generated by Wizards or by the 'manual' methods. You can often use the Wizards to do the bulk of the work in generating the basic item, then finish off with manual editing to fine tune the details.
The Wizards are also readily available as icons to select on the toolbar..
